[Video] The Mountain Midwives of Vietnam | Women of The Revolution | Scoop.it
The maternal mortality rate in rural regions of northern Vietnam is 10 times higher than the national average. In this observational film we follow a Hmong ethnic minority midwife who has been trained to provide maternal care to her community in the isolated Chi Ca commune. We observe her journeys into the harsh mountain terrain, her work tending to pregnant women and her efforts to change the Hmong's cultural attitudes towards maternal health against a backdrop of poverty and remoteness.
